My Time to Craft Reveal

Good Morning Scrappy Friends

It is reveal day at My time to Craft -  a fortnightly challenge blog.

Todays challenge was "Something New", and boy did the DT interpret this in different ways :)

My interpretation was scrappy stash - specifically a Personal Planner from Kaisercraft that I bought, amongst a lot of other goodies,  with some vouchers from my LSS that I received for Christmas - thank you my darling boys xx
Planner - Sml Navy with Rose Gold Foil Accent
It is navy blue with gold foil accents - and I just love it.  Reasonably priced as well!!

So, for the challenge I 'decorated' the first week of January pages.

And some close ups:

It was quite easy to do, knowing when to stop was the difficult decision, lol.

Thanks for dropping by here, hope you get a chance to play along at My time to Craft - see you there real soon

Sketches in Thyme Reveal

Hello Scrappy Friends

I have been missing in action due to knee surgery, but shall be catching back up now.

The Sketches in Thyme Sketch #255 was revealed on 22 Dec

and my example:

I used traditional Christmas colours in a non-Christmas layout.  These are some really old Basic Grey papers I found in my paper box and they went perfectly with the uniforms the Donkeys wore for this game in the Australian School Basketball Championships (they finished 7th, not too bad an effort really).  The photo I used is a little bit dark so I apologise for that - I need to work on my photo editing skills as it looked better than that on the screen prior to printing.

Why not head on over to Sketches in Thyme where there is a new sketch each week and a prie at the end of each month for one contributor.

See you there real soon

Creative Inspiration Mini Crop

Hello Scrappy Friends

It is Mini Crop time at Creative Inspiration, and my challenge to you is to use those traditional Christmas colours, eg red, green, gold, and create a non Christmas project

I have scrapped a photo taken at the recent Australian Schools Basketball Championships where my youngest sons College team won the right to represent Tasmania.  Because of a uniform clash for the second game of the tournament, our boys had to wear an alternate strip which just happened to be white, green and red - lucky me I say

Head on over, you know you want to :)
